This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda.’

English is a language that is close to my heart as I learnt it pretty late in the day and I am still all at sea with it’s usage.

We have Indianised English so beautifully. Don’t believe?

Some ROFL samplers :

“I want to gift you a ‘Rapidex English Speaking course’ ” moment is when pati parmeshwar’s dearest saddi dilli friend declares in all earnestness,

‘You sleep WITH him right now, both of you are so tired’

in front of family and friends. Everybody nods in vehement agreement, as if that will lessen tiredness 😉

English is indeed an assault on our sanskriti.

India is a country with diverse languages. Heck you don’t want my article to tell you that. But having a native language as your mother tongue and another language to bond across or to communicate, can give rise to many colorful interpretations.

English, that way is a very tricky language.

Many people want to ‘loose’ weight. Many during exam time study ‘hardly’. Some don’t have a cook so they ‘cook themselves’.

HUDA continues to build a batter future.

Can we ever forget “Dear Dairy, I had a great day!”

Or “Respected Principle,…” Weather we like it or not 😛

How can we ever forget the Dilli favourite…

” Come to the backside ” !!!!

or “Where is the shop please “”If you go from my front side you will find it on my backside”

“What is your good name?” Well do we have bad ones too? 😀

“It was raining so hard, that it was not taking the name of stopping.”
And the clincher….
“For your above
See my below”

( sent as a reply for an official communique! Not messing with ya)

In spite of all these howlers around, the quest to master this beautiful language is never ending.

Amen
